stress 2

A teen posted this tweet recently and it got me to thinking.

The tweet looked like this:

The Worst Feelings:

Cheated on
Lied to
Led on
Not appreciated
Not cared for
Being left out

I don’t think teens are the only ones whose emotions are running their lives.

I am definitely not exempt.

Well, I have my own list of feelings that you may not be consciously aware of that may be ruining your life:


How these may be ruining your life:

feeling abandoned: makes you feel and continue to manifest “being all alone in the world”. Life may always feel like an uphill battle-you know, the “nothing goes my way” experience. You may be in constant self-defense mode and struggle with trusting people.

feeling resentful: makes you feel and continue to manifest inner conflict. Usually the person is in a situation where they cannot immediately change or walk away. It may mean we feel victims of our situations and we despise those who we see as oppressing us.

feeling unloved: makes you feel and continue to manifest being unloved. You may wrestle with severe to mild depression, suicide or isolation. You may as a result feel as if you don’t matter, that you don’t have any value. You may feel heartbroken and emotionally weak and may put yourself in bad situations with people who mean you no good in your quest for the unconditional love you never received.

feeling unappreciated: makes you feel that no matter what you do, it’s never enough.

feeling unworthy: makes you feel that you don’t deserve to experience good in your life. This can manifest as self-sabotage when it comes to opportunities or relationships.

feeling unwanted: makes you feel unloved and unworthy. This may manifest in some form of rebellion from others since they never felt wanted anyway. A huge disconnect from the heart.

feeling shame: makes you feel perpetual guilt. You may view yourself as unworthy of anything good because you are bad for whatever it is you or someone else say you did “wrong”.

feeling embarrassment: you may feel super self-conscious about yourself or what you do. You may be a slave to what other people think of you.

feeling guilt: see shame.

feeling powerless: makes you feel as if you can’t do it; makes you feel as if you can’t succeed; makes you feel as if whatever you do, it’s never good enough; that your life is not under your control; that what works for everyone else won’t work for me. You may struggle with deep feelings of helplessness and “hating’ on people who do what you do but get what they want while you don’t.

More to come….
